Thanks slowhands for your reply
He was an MP for Warwick from 1837 to 1859 but how he came to be buried in Mitcheldean is a bit of a mystery I haven't seen his name mentioned in any old Forest industries of any kind,
Maybe his wife had some connection with Mitcheldean or even the Rector of Mitcheldean at the time of his death,

Thanks once again slowhands
I wonder if William Collins had any children living in the Mitcheldean area ?
Can see like you no connection with the Rector who buried him but interesting to see that the Rector Charles Dighton had family connections
With Robert Raikes
